    What is the most crucial aspect of film composition?

    Hello!

    I was just wondering... What is more important when it comes to composing a movie score: atmosphere or emotional (and catchy!) themes? I know scores that have both (like those of Vangelis), but what is more important for you as a listener? I personally think that it depends on many things. As a standalone piece of work, CD has to have great themes in it, but as a background for a movie... the atmosphere is everything! Also, for me, atmospheric scores which do not get stuck in your head, without any catchy moments, live longer for me and I don't get tired of them for years...

    What do you think?

    Thanks!

    Well, I'm partial to score that is produced from the atmosphere/setting of a film. Also, a score that centers around the personalities of each main character. Otherwise, the music is a whole other entity, which is good in a way...for it stands out...but I find that...it ends up taking away rather than giving to the film.

    I hope that made sense.
